    I love the creatures in their opera costumes!

    Yeah – and The Mikado, perhaps.

    How can swamp critters know enough to have favorite light operas? Was there a community theater outreach program that got terribly lost, and elected to perform their repertoire until they were rescued?

    They borrowed some of Heckbender’s less-used tombs.

    At first when I wasn’t paying too much attention and I could only see the tops of the heads because I didn’t scroll down far enough I thought it was the West Bleekport Gang down there!

    That’s one tough-looking troupe of thespians! (They won’t mind my calling them “thespians,” will they?). I suppose the most popular light operas would be from Gilbert and Sullivan— H.M.S. Pinafore, The Mikado, and Pirates of Penzance, (which their costumes suggest); but one might also consider the works of Franz Lehár, Johann Strauss the Younger, Victor Herbert, and numerous others—maybe even Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill, who might appeal to the Halfrock songspielers….

    I suddenly got the feeling that this comic is more than just a cool story, but perhaps a social commentary on people in general. I have known people who think themselves elete by going to cultural events yet are much like the slimy vermin shown above.

    elete = elite

    I mis-stated earlier this week. The water lilies were not mutated Venus’ fly traps. These are the real deal!

    Actually, wouldn’t they be thesssssspians? And the very models of modern major generals…
